A lot of determining factors that lead teams down a long and twisted road throughout the course of a 162 game season are unfortunately uncontrollable.
If these last couple of years have taught the Dodgers and their fans anything, it’s those unfortunate things will undoubtedly happen.
With that said, I do agree with Andrew Friedman’s claim about the Dodgers’ roster not containing any weaknesses, on paper.
Right now, at the pre-embryonic stages of an MLB season, “on paper” is really all that matters.
The front-office can only do so much with the time and money they are given. I believe that with the time and money Friedman and his team were given, they’ve built yet another World Series contender.
As stated earlier, a multitude of different catastrophic occurrences could indeed happen. However, this is why we play the games.
